Voice cast comments on the anime and their roles!

In the game, I got to play a rampaging Rena, an endearing Rena, and a cool Rena!
I’m really excited to see all these Renas in the anime!
I hope you’re looking forward to it, too!
●Sakura Ayane, voice of Tohka
Phantom Trigger’s cast of characters are finally springing to life in the anime adaptation, and I’m really happy to
continue to be a part of it.
Phantom Trigger is full of unfortunate girls who are often suffering, so please enjoy that as well as the story itself.
●Nazuka Kaori, voice of Chris
I’m really happy that Phantom Trigger is being made into an anime! I hope Chris’s cute and motherly, stern-but-smiling
personality comes through well on-screen.
I can’t wait to see it!♪
●Tanezaki Atsumi, voice of Murasaki
I’m very happy that the character I’ve been playing gets the chance to come to life in anime form.
I wonder if they’ll include that scene, or that one…and Murasaki’s Russian ninja-speak…
I can’t wait to see what the Grisaia: Phantom Trigger anime is like!
I hope you’re looking forward to it! Thanks for all your support, nin nin.
